InnovaMedia’s Klaus Meier has published “How Does the Audience Respond to Constructive Journalism?” in Journalism Practice. Based on a holistic definition of constructive journalism, two experiments examined the audience responses to German-language news and features presented to readers and radio listeners in both constructive and non-constructive versions. The results are multifaceted. On the micro-level, constructive forms can counteract a negative view of the world because the audience recognizes a solution-orientation and underlying spirit of hope. The increased willingness to share constructive stories indicates, on the macro-level, that constructive reporting can raise the perception of possible solutions and role models and hence encourage engagement and emulation. This article is a result of Meier’s research on audience engagement and Constructive Journalism.
